Oregon “Ban the Box” Law Passes Senate

House Bill 3025, which prohibits employers from asking job applicants about their criminal history, has passed the Oregon Senate and is now with the House.  The current version of the bill places enforcement for violations of the law with BOLI (applicants will not have a right to sue a prospective employer for violating the law) and exempts certain employers who are required to  consider criminal history when hiring. The bill is here: https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2015R1/Downloads/MeasureDocument/HB3025/A-Engrossed
